No more exclamation points in my titles 

I was going to title this post "We rode again today!" I knew I had used an exclamation point on the last couple of posts, but, no, I did on the last four!

Anyway, we did ride again today but just to breakfast and to the home and garden show. We've got things to do--he reading and I cleaning, etc., but I've just whiled my time away again like always.

We rode today! 

B and I rode our bikes today, but just a short outing around town. A few times last fall, I had trouble starting mine. When B got the bikes out today (I was at work, then volunteering at the cat society), he couldn't get mine to start even after the battery was on the charger for awhile. He said I had let the battery go dry. I didn't know! So he put water in it and put it on the charger again.

I was home by this time. He tried starting the bike again, and it still didn't start. So he jumped it. We kept it running for several minutes and then went for a ride. We didn't want to go too far away and take the chance of my bike not starting again, so we came home. After a couple of hours, it started up right away, so we went downtown for dinner. It started again after dinner.

This next week, the temperatures are going to be in the 30s again, so we'll see about the battery. If I keep having trouble with starting the bike, I'm going to see if I can get a new battery under the warranty, but that's going to be up real soon.

I've another blog! 

Oh, I'm such a prolific blogger that having one just isn't enough! Ha!

I have another blogger blog that is strictly private. It's one where I can rant and rave about the ups and downs, highs and lows of teaching middle schoolers under the current politics of education. Not a pretty picture. Not an active blog, either. By the time I get home, I'm too tired to do any ranting, and I just want to put whatever stressed me out behind me.

Yesterday I set up another blog, this time with http://edublogs.org/ which provides "free blogs for teachers, researchers, librarians and other education professionals." It also does free blogs for students at http://learnerblogs.org/. I'm trying this one out, learning my way around it in hopes of proposing it or some software for students to use in the classroom. As it is now, anything even remotely related to blogs is blocked to students and teachers.

Let's see. I also have a Delphi Forums blog that I set up a few weeks ago but haven't posted on yet because my computer is too old and can't handle it!

So that's four blogs for me.
